Part 2: Essay
Evaluate your diet:
Now you will evaluate your diet. Take a look through each food group category and take note of how many days you did or did not meet the Daily Recommended Amount. Identify the 3 following food groups:
1.The food group you ate the most below the recommended daily amount.
2.The food group you ate the most above the recommended daily amount.
3.The food group you ate closest to the recommended daily amount.
These food groups will the be the three topics of your essay
Now do some research about each of your food groups. Topics might include:
•The importance of that food group and what nutrients it provides
•The types of vitamins or minerals that are commonly found in that food group
•The types of nutritional imbalances or disorders that may occur if not enough of that food group is consumed
•Cheap and easy ways to introduce more of that food group into your diet
•The best items to eat to fulfill the serving requirements (if you are eating too much of that food group)
Keep track of the sources you used to find your information because you will need to cite your information in your paper (at least one citation per body paragraph). Try to use reputable sources such as governmental organizations like the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or nutrition or health companies. Try avoid nutrition blogs, especially if they don’t list their own sources.
